In the summer of 2005, Between the Buried and Me released Alaska. The album released the songs "Selkies: The Endless Obsession", "The Primer", and "Backwards Marathon" as singles. In the following year, the band released their first cover album, The Anatomy Of, a collection of covers of bands that influenced Between the Buried and Me, including Metallica, King Crimson, Pantera, Faith No More, Queen, Pink Floyd, Earth Crisis, Counting Crows, and Soundgarden. On February 14, 2014, it was announced Between the Buried and Me would record, and release a live album for The Parallax II: Future Sequence, playing it in its entirety with additional instruments, including a saxophone, percussionists, flute and a string quartet. The release, titled Future Sequence: Live at the Fidelitorium, was released September 30, 2014. Coma Ecliptic and Colors Anniversary (2015-2017).
Between the Buried and Me 's 2007 album, Colors, marked a departure for the band from the expansive technical death metal of its earlier career into more progressive rock-influenced territory. Released in 2009, The Great Misdirect refined BTBAM 's new approach, and their split from Victory Records that year afforded them the freedom to further push the limits of progressive death metal. Rogers ' guttural growls sound more menacing than ever, and what the album lacks in originality it makes up for with feverishly inventive riffs and melodies, making The Parallax II: Future Sequence the band's most inspired release since Alaska.
Do you feel like taking 2012’s Between the Buried and Me seriously" This is the most important question regarding The Parallax II: Future Sequence, because the answer vastly influences your opinion on the album. On one hand, there’s plenty of reason to believe Raleigh’s premier progressive metal quintet is starting to take itself seriously.
The band opens Future Sequence with the Pink Floyd-esque Goodbye to Everything, which sounds like it might be from lead singer Tommy Rogers’ solo album Pulse. The song introduces themes specific to this album and gently leads the listener into Astral Body, the single happiest sounding song the band has ever written. And for all that positivity it sacrifices nothing when it comes to being heavy. The relationship of these two songs is like that of Mirrors and Obfuscation off The Great Misdirect, with the first song being mellower while the second hits the unsuspecting listener with riff. That isn’t true on their newest release; Between the Buried and Me have not sounded this passionate or this ferocious in years. Take the song Telos for example. This was the first song released by the band before the album dropped and it is probably the most aggressive on the album.
